People considering an Indian Ocean holiday should take a trip to Jaipur in India if they are hoping to enjoy a luxury stay.
This is the suggestion of Manoj Yadav, writing for Suite 101, who noted that India is a "wonderful place to travel" and Jaipur offers "world-famous" hotels.
"Rambagh Palace Hotel has been ranked number one in the world by Condé Nast Traveler magazine," he remarked, adding that other extravagant choices in the city include the Rajvilas Hotel and Jai Mahal Palace.
Jaipur also has a range of places to stay for history buffs, Mr Yadav explained, with heritage hotels providing time-honoured food alongside interesting architecture and traditional environments.
Once holidaymakers are settled in, they can visit Ranthambore National Park and Sariska National Park - local attractions that are well known for their tigers and birds respectively, he commented.
Those currently in India can take part in the ongoing Anunaad, the National Folk Instrumental Festival, which is being held at Jawahar Kala Kendra in Jaipur.
